Deep in the rain forest the Agua Boa River flows out of the Mocidade Mountains. The clear river and light sandy bottom are perfect for sight casting to cruising Peacock’s! Peacock Bass are known as one of the toughest game fish on the fly! Ranging 10-24 lbs they will go aerial like the Tarpon. With gills rattling they will go end over end before making a few more runs and then submerge themselves before giving up. These fish are unstoppable on the first few runs, they will wear you down if you don’t wear them down first!
